A twelve week consultation which asks islanders for their views on a public services ombudsman is closing on Friday 11 October. Islanders are asked to send any submissions before the closing date to ensure their views form part of the consultation.
The consultation is seeking views on:
- which government departments, parish functions, arm’s length bodies and other providers of services to the public should be included within the remit of the Ombudsman
- what the Ombudsman should do and what methods should be used in regards to investigating complaints and overseeing public bodies
- how the Ombudsman should work with other watchdogs and regulators already established in Jersey; and
- what remedy the Ombudsman should be able to offer islanders.
All islanders are encouraged to have their say.
They can view and complete the online survey, email their comments to JPSO@gov.je or write to Strategic Policy, Performance and Population, Government of Jersey, 19-21 Broad Street, St Helier, JE2 3RR.
